Pizza in the Fall – Delicious Ideas For Making Pizza This Time of Year
Fall is such a great time of year to cook. The weather cools off, football is geared up and the holiday season is just around the corner.
There's no better time than now to start perfecting a few delicious fall pizzas. Pizza is great anytime of year, but in the fall you can really get creative and festive with your ingredients.
This time of year I think of root vegetables as comfort food. Veggies such as sweet potatoes, pumpkins and squash are great ingredients to include in your pizza recipes. They may not sound like traditional pizza toppings, but do not underestimate how delicious they are.
Making pizzas for a crowd of guys watching the big game? Okay, you might want to stick with the traditional meat and cheese pizza. But for a quiet night at home, try sliced, caramelized sweet potatoes with rosemary and basil on a prepared crunchy crust with marinara sauce. This sweet potato pizza is delicious and easy to make.
If you are looking for a fun pizza recipe for a Halloween party, try making a dessert pizza with pumpkin, cinnamon, whipped cream and pecans. Nothing says fall like pumpkin and cinnamon.
Think outside of the box with a recipes that do not fit the traditional pizza mold. One perfect example is a pizza casserole. Casseroles are always great this time of year and one with pizza flavors is even better. This type of dish is great for potlucks and holiday parties. Pizza dips and appetizers are also great ideas for holiday parties. Use rich, quality ingredients to make dips, mini-pizzas and appetizers a crow pleaser.
Most of all, enjoy experimenting with different flavors and ingredients that represent the fall season.
